with hispanic voters because of rhetoric around immigration. and candidate romney and the primary dug the hole deeper. you know, people can be on public assistance and scheme the system. that's real. and these programs are teetering on bankruptcy. but most people are on public assistance don't have a character flaw. they just have a tough life. i want to create more jobs, and the focus should be on how to create more jobs, not demonize those who find themselves in hard times. our party can adjust. conservatism is an asset. but rhetoric like this keeps digging a hole for the republican party. and it we don't stop digging, we're never going to get out of it. >> senator, thank you very much. >> egypt. watch what you do and how you do it. you're teetering with the congress on having your aid cut off if you keep inciting violence between the israelis and the palestinians. >> we've covered it all. senator, thank you for that. i appreciate it very much. yeah. other than that, have a nice day. >> i can't think of anything else to say. >>> i want to turn to our roundtable, andrea mitchell, tom friedman
you a policy question? guest: you have to? >> governor romney recently said president obama route 1 the election because of the guests to young black and hispanic voters. what to do make of these remarks? hosti did not see them but i hed about them. guest: if you look back at the election of 2012, when you have a product you put into the market place, and the marketplace does not buy it, you either have a better marketing or a better product. this is the wake-up call for the republican party to have better marketing republicans need to do better with female voters and blue-collar voters and latino and hispanic voters. we also need to have products that sell that. that does not mean you change your philosophy. i think president obama did a better job getting out the vote in his campaign. i don't think it is a matter of people looking at the election and saying i will vote because of gifts. i think they said which one of these candidates they prefer. host: you disagree with the analysis? guest: of think it is as simple as saying the president gave the gifts. >> your a couple of weeks
conservatives know this is no way to treat a potential voter. it was put this way in the "new york post." romney didn't say the election came out as it did because obama's team outplayed and outfoxed his. he should have because that's the truth. he said obama won the second term through essentially bribery. i have three rules for both parties as they converge to do their jobs. respect the vote are. respect each other's offices and search hard for common ground. that's what we should be doing and guiding our country's conversation. not trashing the people who voted against you but respecting the fact that they did for your own good. washington bureau chief from mother jones and our political analyst. let's take a look at some of this stuff from john mccain. four years since john mccain lost his presidential bid, ten days since mitt romney lost but they are holding a grudge against the president and their bitter comments this week. listen to romney's conference calm about obama's gifts and mccain's gifts about obama ally susan rice. >> what the president, the president's campaign did was focus on
night. within the first five minutes of the second debate voters said ok, he is back. it was a challenging period. for about two weeks there, we were the gang that couldn't shoot straight. there were a lot in the media that thought romney was on his way to the presidency. >> you were not in the campaign strategy room at that moment, but at what point when you first heard that tape come out, what was your immediate reaction? i would love to be a fly on your blackberry watching the emails come in. >> it is really a remarkable statement when you think about it. of cortse when you make a statement like that, and there are categories of -- i will come back to that. >> i will come back to that. >> we tend to call unfortunate statements in the campaign misstatements. when you listen to it, you understand that it was given with fierce conviction and absolutely articulate. you know frankly if you get a room full of republicans all together and you are on your second bottle of wine, that is where the conversation goes. not the first time i have heard that. it is just so fundame
after losing the presidential election mitt romney held a conference call with many soft campaign workers. he remarked on how obama used the old playbook to target specific interest groups african-americans and hispanic and young voters. you can imagine somebody making 25, 30, $35,000 a year being told you are going to get free health care, particularly if you don't have it, worth $10,000 per family in perpetuity. this is huge. likewise with his manic voters free health care was a big plus in addition with regards to hispanic voters amnesty for illegals, so-called dream act was a huge plus for that voting group. i campaigned for governor romney and was for him and disappointed when he didn't win. i'm going to take issue with the perception that people who are poor want to be. and people getting government benefits want to stay there. in my experience as a person who didn't start out on the high end of the economic spectrum on the other end as a pastor for 12 years then as a governor who worked 10 1/2 years and saw more than half the people get off of welfare rolls on to a payroll,
of dollars spent on ads and by these super pacs. voters turnout was down by about 5% this year over the last time. but most to have the money was spent by supporters of mitt romney, and it didn't win the electorate. so should we be caring anymore? is it okay for them to be throwing their money away if they want to and the message not getting through? >> well, i felt it was a perfect example of free market economies, right? all the money that was spent -- what was it, $8 million -- i think it was $800 million, relative to $500 million on the left. didn't work. the electorate made their voice known and i think what's particularly powerful is this is an election cycle where i think the american public, for the first time in a long time, said enough is enough all the horrible things that were being said about women, in fact, insured many women's victory because a vote for mccaskill was against the horrible things akin was saying. not so much a vote for donnelly, but a vote for the things his opponent was saying. so i think citizens united already demonstrated itself to not have the overweaning p
the voters think you don't like them. mitt romney was picking up the theme that he put before the country, that 47% video during the campaign, get back to quit despising the american people particularly because a lot of what they're despising them for, republican policies. when mitt romney said, so many americans aren't paying taxes, yeah, because the republicans doubled the child tax credit for conservative reasons, yes, because they expanded the earned income tax credit as ronald reagan did because they thought it was an effective anti-poverty program. >> congressman becerra, let me go to you on this. >> it's deja vu all over again. >> what are republicans doing to attract those certain members of the base? >> i don't think they read the tea leaves from november the 6th and i think they're still harkening to yesteryear. it's a new day in america and they should be catching up. he is the de facto leader of the party, mitt romney is still there, and so his comments remind folks of the 47% comment and it's unfortunate for them because they have to figure out a way to distance themselves fr
? . he believed this was an issue that voters cared about that independents would swing to obama over climate change and some of the polling absolutely supports this that this was one of the reasons that people voted for obama over romney was that they were concerned about climate change and they felt he was a better candidate on climate change. we had a terrible, terrible candidate on climate change and we had a candidate on climate change who needs a lot of pressure. so i feel more optimistic than i did in 2008 because in 2008 the attitude of the environmental movement was our guy just got in and we need to support him and he's going to give us the legislation that we want and we'll take his advice and we're going to be good little soldiers and now maybe i'm being overly optimistic, but i think people learn the lesson of the past four years and people now understand that what obama needs and what we need, forget what obama needs is a real independent movement with climate change at its center and it will put pressure the entire political class and there's no waiting around for obama

"washington journal" live at 7:00 eastern on c-span. >>truman had two big puzzles in his life. the first was this is a man who got into politics having failed in many businesses as a young man. tom way to get into politics in -- the only way to get into politics was a machine. two machines. he picked up the pender gast machine, the most corrupt and often vicious machine. i said to myself, how did this happen? how could he possibly work in this machine in local politics? that was the first thing i had to work out. the second, of course, is what we all know about and that is how did he come to use the atomic bomb? what was behind the decision? what's the story about the adomic bomb before he became president and then when the decision was on his
in this county, he got 5 votes. mitt romney winning 139 to 5, made this the president's worst showing in the u.s. we went to the girl's basketball game at guthrie wrl high school and asked the voters why there was such distaste with barack obama's presidency. >> i thought he sounded more like a dictator than a president. >> we went to the local baptist church to a monthly women's club meeting and heard similar sentiments. >> anything that goes wrong, he just blames it on bush, the last administration, it wasn't his fault, well now it is his fault. >> reporter: just after president obama was inaugurated, we spent time in king county. >> i just ask god that he would truly connect with him so he would know what god's heart was for the united states of america. >> reporter: you told us four years ago that you hoped the lord would help barack obama. >> yes. >> reporter: do you think that happened? >> it doesn't appear so. >> reporter: and then there was something we heard before. what bothers you about president obama's first term. >> that he lied to us about where he was born. to me he just seems
. >> okay. switching gears now. republicans are blasting mitt romney for his gifts comment, saying president obama won because he gave huge gifts to key groups like african-americans, hispanics and young voters. >> this is not where the republican party needs to go. look, we want -- if you want ters to like you, the first thing you've got to do is to like them first. and it is certainly not helpful to tell voters that you think their votes were bought. that's certainly not a way to show you respect them and like them. >> i just think it's nuts. i mean, first of all, it's insulting. this would be like walmart having a bad week and going the customers have really been unru unruly. the job of a political leader in part is to understand the people. if we can't offer a better future that is believable to more people we're not going to win. >> i mean, we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. i think that's the only -- we need to look everywhere. >> and so as the gop grapples with the election loss, are they scapegoating romney or searching
-by-state to fight for it. every voter in new hampshire got a personal visit with mitt romney, michele bachmann, and herman cain, i think. it pushes you to do that. at the national level you would not have that challenge. they have to be in these town hall meetings and go through it. it does create some challenges. no question. >> the superpac probably spent $700 million, something like that. it looks like they achieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that the targeted. what does this say about anything? it is a stunning outcome. >> he wrote an editorial about this, rupert is too important to write his own anymore. but it was about the fact that there is a lot of discussion about what citizens united meant for this campaign. the top 10 groups involved, the spending was more on the other side. unions are allowed to take cues from members and use it to influence people outside membership. it is not that the other side was not spending a lot as well. if you add it all up. is that accurate? >> the unions may better vantage. channeling it into organizing and voter turnout, as opposed
